APIM ARM FTW: How to Effectively Build a Template for your Azure API Management Resource

Azure API Management (APIM) is a great tool to use to bring together your various API endpoints into a single, unified endpoint, that can be secured via a variety of different options. However, attempting to work with this tool alongside Azure Resource Manager templates can leave you scratching your head, as you attempt to figure out the correct resources you need to build out your API from end-to-end.

If you've found yourself facing and failing to overcome this problem before, then this is the session for you - we'll talk through how to structure out your APIM deployment in the most effective way and then demonstrate how this can be deployed out into Azure.

Attendees to this session should ideally have a good grasp of working with Azure, APIM and a working knowledge of building out Azure Resource Manager templates.
